Each year, more of the earth’s ozone layer disappears, which allows higher amounts of UV rays than ever before to penetrate it. Although applying sunscreen can go a long way towards helping prevent skin cancer on individuals who spend a lot of time outdoors, it’s not the most practical solution for anyone who spends a lot of time indoors, such as office employees. However, this is where commercial window film will come in handy.
1. Excellent for Large Office Windows
Intense research has been performed over the years about just how harmful the sun can be. Not only can employees experience sunburn while trying to work at their desks on a hot summer’s day; prolonged exposure to excessive sunlight could result in them developing skin cancer or melanoma over time as well.
Installing reflective commercial window film on all office windows will not only minimize the risk of sunburn for you and your employees; it will help keep everyone cool during summer, while protecting your office furniture and tech items such as computers, printers and monitors as well.
2. Perfect for Reception Areas
Any areas of your office building that face east or west should also have reflective window tinting installed because they will receive the most direct sunlight during the morning or afternoon. This will not only reduce the temperature of your reception area, keep employees comfortable and prevent them from experiencing unnecessary sunburn while attending to clients; keeping the sun’s harmful UV rays outside will also prevent carpeting, artwork and other furnishings from rotting and fading prematurely.
3. Don’t Forget those Break Rooms
Another part of your office building that will benefit from having commercial window film installed is break rooms or other areas where employees go during their lunch times.
Keeping direct sun out of this part of the building will ensure that employees can take a break in comfort, without having to worry about getting too hot or experiencing sunburn if they sit by any of the windows.
Choosing the Best Window Film
When searching for commercial window film, it’s essential to deal with companies that have been in business for a long time and that have knowledgeable employees. This will ensure that you are provided with a top quality product that is correctly installed.
Price should also not be your main motivating factor for choosing a specific window film either because cheaper products will never be able to serve their purpose as well as those that are slightly costlier. In many cases, cheaper types of window tinting may also not carry any form of warranty.
